Becca Hall (Director/Teacher): Becca  was home-schooled/unschooled for seven years, including all of high school. When she was eighteen, she attended Stanford University, where she graduated with Interdisciplinary Honors in English.  She received her Masters in Environmental Writing from the University of Montana. She writes poetry and fiction, including novels, and is a new mom.

Through Frog Hollow, Becca draws on her own passion for writing as well as over eighteen years teaching in a wide range of educational settings. Before founding Frog Hollow in 2011, she had taught poetry in elementary school classrooms, tutored high school English, taught preschool at Stanford’s renowned Bing Preschool, done environmental education, assisted on college field studies courses at the Sierra Institute,  and taught college composition at the University of Montana.  From 2000 — 2012 she also ran Summer Winds Day Camp, an arts and nature focused camp in Snoqualmie.  At Summer Winds, she created a camp curriculum that combined arts, music, nature studies, games, storytelling, farming education, and history. Becca loves working with writing students of all levels and learning styles to spark their own excitement for writing and their belief in their own voices.
